I recently brought home a dress similar to the monk dress to refashion! Your picture motivates me to get started. Great job.

Love the dress, and your reworking of the thrift store find. That pattern is one of my TNT ones. My only complaint is that for some reason I have a hard time getting the neck band to lay against the body. It wanst to flop forward. Could have something to do with the skill of the sewer. : )

If I had seen this contest in time, I would have voted for you. What a great remake of a really formless dress. You can wear this with any color and in many seasons.
